COAT OF SMILES, parody art of iconic symbols. A duck's hat, a mouse's ears and a smiling yellow button. Three iconic things brought together in one artwork.
The PAPERWALKER Journal is the personal weblog of DUCKLAND creator and award-winning character designer Florian Satzinger – who worked on characters such as Donald Duck, Mickey Mouse, Looney Tunes (Daffy Duck, Bugs Bunny, Silvester etc.), Pinky And The Brain, A.J.Hogg and Scooby-Doo, for studios such as Warner Bros., Disney, ReelFX and The Zanuck Company – in which he shares bits and pieces of his character design work, processes, visual development, inspirations and reference materials of current, past and future projects.

Lost And Found

I completely forgot about these early rough designs of Donald Dark until I opened an unnamed WIP folder wondering what it was, so here you go.

Duckland:
The Wingless Beast from Ingering

My drawing desk, today. I reworked the "Lindworm from Ingering" design, a wingless dragon-like beast from last year's Duckland show at the Kasematten theatre, for a new task.

Disney's LORCANA

I was, and still am, on the team of the Lorcana production (Ravensburger North America and Disney). This here was a personal piece I did upfront to the actual character work, warming myself up for the big adventure. I kind of slipped – in a metaphorical sense – into Mickey getting ready for the journey. LORCANA.COM

Especially big thanks to lead art director Matthew Eng for the guidance and support.
